Chris Christie suggests Trump's family members should leave their White House jobs

Chris Christie on ABC

President Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner, should resign from their jobs at the White House, Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) suggested Sunday in an interview on ABC's This Week.

Trump will ultimately "have to make [the] judgment" about whether his family members are still an asset to the administration, Christie said. "And there were many of us who counseled the president" not to hire family, he continued, "not because they weren't competent or qualified or that the president didn't trust them, but because when circumstances come up that the president couldn't have been aware of — and in a normal situation, you might terminate a staff member for that reason — it becomes a lot more difficult if you're going to be sitting at Thanksgiving dinner with that person."
